Hello and happy Sunday! How are your holidays going? I hope you had a lovely Christmas and got to spend some time with your (closest) family members. At least that was the situation here in Austria. Some did a test to be able to meet grandparents and some just continued with distancing like on any other day.
Here is one more card I forgot to share with you. It´s also a Christmas card. Done using one of my new stencils, called Winter Flowers. I´ve first inked the background light green, then added red Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the background and mounted it on a piece of darker green cardstock.
For decor, there are just small dots of Nuvo Glitter Drops. And a STAMPlorations clear sticker, mounted on a green cardstock piece as a centerpiece. Simple and easy.
I´ve started totally motivated after Christmas and I´m trying to do good things to me. Starting health wise. So more excersize will be on the menü this year. I want to feel better and fitter again. So far so good 🙂 it´s been two days, so it´s still been easy. But I need to keep to it from now on, like forever to achieve a permanent change :). Keep your thumbs up for me, will you?
Hello lovelies and happy Friday!!! Today´s card share is again very simple and easy to do. Well, if you need to make plenty of cards, simple and easy is the fastest way to go, unless you start in June :-). Which I didn´t, so I need to find other solutions to make plenty of cards quickly.
There too, very done in just a few minutes. Cut the background paper into size, adhere on place, apply ribbon. Then fussy cut the sentiment pieces and adhere on place with 3D foam pads & Voilá! All done.
And again I´ve got the ribbon box open and used a few centimeters of ribbon. Not that you will notice any changes in my ribbon stash yet… that will take a few Christmases, but I try to do something with them :).
Here too, the ribbon just perfectly matches the sentiment piece! And the papers on the background are the older ones I´m trying to use up on my Christmas cards this year. Sooo many cards from just one piece of paper!!!
Have a great weekend, lovelies, whatever you are doing! Let´s try and make the best of the situation, even though Christmas just isn´t going to be the same like last year. xxx, Sanna
Hello lovelies and happy Thursday! I bet you are already fed up with my Christmas card posts, but I am not ready to stop sharing this years cards yet :). So hang in there! Soon, this too shall be over and you will see other things here too :). But for now, here is my card share for today:
I used older ribbons from my never-ending ribbon stash 😉 and papers by Canvas Corp. I really like how these look like! Simple but fun!
For the rest, I just simply layered the papers on top of each other and added the ribbon in between. So no difficult techniques, just simple cutting and adhering. I really like the combination of red and kraft tones together. Looks kind of vintagey and old fashioned.
What type of cards did you make this year? And what colours were your favorites? And what do you think about yellow as a Pantone color of the year? I love yellow, so it´s a good one for me, but I know that you either love or hate it. So what´s it for you?
How are your Xmas preparations getting along? We have all the cookies done. Check out the supersize Moomin Gingerbread cookies we did!!! They are 23cm´s tall! So everyone will get a personalized one as a table card for Christmas. Going to look fun on the Christmas dinner table, I think :). Christmas this year will be so different, but at least this will bring a smile on everyone´s face (I hope).
Hello lovelies and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another quick set of Christmas cards. For these cards I again used some older produt from my stash and added Canvas Corp papers as well as some stenciling and stamping to them.
Basically I´ve just taken a leftover stenciled piece (left card) and added it on top of the patterned paper. Before adhering it on place, I bound a ribbon around the background paper. I have so many ribbons that I really need to find a place for them! Christmas cards always look great with small ribbon elements, so there.
For the second card I just fussy cut the Canvas Corp paper, added a ribbon around it for fun detail and adhered it onto the background paper with 3D foam pads. That way it has more dimension.
So very easy cards to do. The glitter piece is done using Nuvo Glitter Paste and a STAMPlorations stencil, but it´s a leftover from a previous card already, so I just used the piece up here. Then just added the stamped holiday sentiment – this time stamped with red. I usually mainly use black, but wanted to try another color here.
And that is my Christmas card share for today. I´m really happy to be using up older product on these cards. They also work very well with new product, too. And the stash busting can continue :).
Hello and happy Monday!! Today I´m sharing another set of Christmas cards. This card set is done using Canvas Corp papers.
I love the kraft paper on the background with the Christmas sentiments on it!! And I combined a very bright green, white and red toned paper (also by Canvas Corp) with the kraft paper and they work together really well! I´ve just added a few buttons and pieces of ribbon to the cards for detail, but didn´t want to overdo them. I find the papers themselves look fabulous enough!!
One more full week and then we are almost there! How are your Christmas preparations going along? I still have so much to prepare. And it´s been a very strange year all in all, pre and during the pandemic and I´m not sad to see 2020 go, to be honest. I just hope next year will be slightly better. I´m not wishing much this year, just that the situation would get better eventually. So scared this will just go on and on..
But for today, I´m just thankful that we have been healthy so far and that I can get my mind off the awful things thru my crafting. Wishing you all a good day! Stay healthy!! xxx, Sanna
